Change the BaseHue of your WM5 device the easy way!
The interface colors of the WM5 device is mainly based on a single hue. Most UI elements, such as the Taskbar, the softkeys, buttons, etc., are thus "painted" using this hue, with varying degrees of Saturation and Luminosity or Lightness.
In order to change the UI colors, one can use a registry editor and change the DWORD value BaseHue in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Color.
The accepted value of this DWORD value ranges from 0 to 4294967295. If you choose a value between 0 - 255, you'll get greyscale UI colors. Any other value from 256 above gives you "colored" UI elements.
This application simplifies changing the BaseHue value without the need for manually tweaking the registry - the BaseHue Express. Just run the application on your WM5 device, choose a color from the color wheel, press the left softkey "Apply", and your UI Colors affected by BaseHue is automatically changed.
